Rats with injections of 4 or 8 mg/kg of phencyclidine (PCP) are impaired in the acquisition of active avoidance learning and radial arm maze performance. This impairment was not due to a change in detectability of aversive stimuli or the inability to perform the correct response. The primary deficit appears to be the inability of PCP injected animals to(More)
Rats with electrodes implanted in dorsal hippocampus were trained to perform a delayed spatial matching-to-sample task on a radial arm maze. Subseizure level electrical stimulation of the dorsal hippocampus applied during the study phase disrupted retention of a specific arm when tested at a 20-min delay but had no effects at 1- and 12-min delays. There(More)
Random deviations from the perfect symmetry of normally bilaterally symmetrical characters for an individual with a given genotype occur during individual development due to the influence of multiple environmental factors. Fluctuating asymmetry (FA) is often used as a measure of developmental instability, and can be estimated as the variance of the(More)
Long-Evans rats received septal lesions or sham operations and were tested for performance in a radial arm maze, level of activity and water intake in order to test whether recovery of function was mediated by sprouting of peripheral sympathetic fibers. Animals receiving septal lesions displayed an initial deficit in radial arm maze performance followed by(More)
High levels of fluctuating asymmetry in populations of Apodemus flavicollis from the most contaminated areas in Chornobyl" (2004). Abstract Random deviations from the perfect symmetry of normally bilaterally symmetrical characters for an individual with a given genotype occur during individual development due to the influence of multiple environmental(More)
